This is first-language speakers, so the low number probably results from Africans speaking their native or tribal tongue first.

Good quiz. Can you make Gaelic - and perhaps Erse - work for 'Scottish'. Also, are there really more speakers of Cornish than Manx?

I like it! Ain't no such language as "Scottish" though - the closest thing is Scots, which isn't Celtic. You really want "Scottish Gaelic". Nominated anyway.

Change ‘Scottish’ to Scottish Gaelic or just Gaelic, it’s never called Scottish

Scottish is typically another term for Scots, which is not a Celtic language. Scots Gaelic is the correct term I think for what you mean. Otherwise great quiz!
